General information

In 2002, the vision for a museum and cultural center to document the accomplishments of African Americans around the Clemson area was shared by local residents. Work began to make this vision a reality, and in August 2007, a diverse group of local residents, along with graduates from the former Calhoun Elementary School and volunteers from Clemson University, joined together to establish the Clemson Area African American Museum. The realization of the museum was brought one step closer to reality when the City of Clemson purchased and renovated the facility for community and cultural purposes. The Museum is located in the Calhoun Bridge Center, which also houses other agencies dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all Clemson residents. The Calhoun Bridge Center was initially called the Calhoun Elementary School. It was the last school built for African American students in this part of Pickens County. In more recent years the building was called the Morrison Annex. The school played a pivotal role in the African American community of Clemson and served as an educational icon and cultural center for the African American community before integration.
